There are worse ways to make a living than gallivanting around the world driving some of the greatest cars mankind has ever produced, so it’s fair to say that Chris Harris has a job we all want. He calls his latest video “Car of the Year 2014,” but contrary to what the name suggests it’s not so much a contest, but rather a 42-minute celebration of Harris’ favorite cars of the last two years or so.
The setting is the beautiful Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimão, Portugal and the players are the Porsche 918 Spyder, Porsche GT3, Ferrari 458 Speciale, Ferrari F12berlinetta, Renault Megane 275 Trophy-R, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, and BMW M3. There are no winners or losers, just Harris and a few of his friends who have helped him out along the way, torching Pirellis and leaving long black marks all over the Portuguese tarmac.
Side activities include an impromptu go-kart race, with Harris and his longtime cameraman Neil Carry switching roles and failing miserably, and an unlikely drag race between the Porsche 918, Ferrari F12 and Renault Megane Trophy-R. No prizes for correctly predicting the finishing order for that one.
